Alumiunium reinforced back support insert for the Savotta Kevyt Rajapartio and Jääkärireppu backpacks. The riveted aluminium rails keep the backpack from deforming and gives additional support when carrying heavy and cumbersome loads, thus increasing your comfort.

Made by Finn-Savotta Oy

Founded in 1955 Finn-Savotta, or just Savotta, is known for their simplistic and extremely rugged designs. For decades Savotta has been the go-to supplier of hiking gear for the Finnish civilian market and combat gear and tents for the defence forces.

Today Savotta operates two factories, one in Karstula, Finland, where they make all their tents and metal components and one in Estonia where they do about 50% of their sewing.

Aika suolainen hinta parilla alumiinilistalla varustetusta muovilevyn palasta... Kätevä DIY- ihminen askartelee tällaisen itse. Rautakaupasta, mm Motonetista, saa 4x30 millin alumiinilistaa kympillä parin metrin pätkän; poran ja popniittipihdit voinee lainata kaverilta, jos itsellä ei ole.

If you have a Savotta Jääkäri M [ https://www.varusteleka.com/en/product/savotta-jaakari-m-backpack/33028 ], then you already know that it is a capable little pack. However, if you plan on toting heavy loads on a regular basis, and/or have any kind of spinal injury, then I would suggest that this is a wise investment.

Yes, I did look at repurposing a spare back support from an old CamelBak BFM that I had lying around. However, it would have required cutting to size, and had just the one aluminium stay that is held loosely within a central, fabric tunnel.

After weighing the options, I decided to buy this (I should really have ordered it with the rucksack... ) as you know that it will fit and, having a pair of riveted stays, I assumed that it would possess greater torsional rigidity.

I will be honest and say that I was initially disappointed by the poor finish to the edges of the plastic portion of the board (hence the ½☆ docked). That said, in use you do not see it, nor does it affect the back support's performance. If your OCD gets the better of you, then a few minutes spent with some fine grit paper will remedy the situation and appease your troubled soul.

More to the point it simply works; appreciably stiffening the back of the rucksack and transferring the weight more efficiently to your hips - especially when using the hip-belt. The absolute difference in weight is insignificant, whilst, arguably, it makes the loaded rucksack /feel/ lighter - which ultimately is the name of the game. There is even enough room to fit both this and the original back support into the same channel, if you want/need to make your pack stiffer yet.

So, would I recommend it?

If you are ordering the rucksack and think that you /may/ want it, either because you are carrying a back injury and/or know that you will be hefting some weighty loads, then yes, buy it now and save on the shipping by placing a single order.

If you already own the rucksack, then you are aware of your limitations, its capabilities and how much you demand of it. If you are happy as is, then I would not say that this is a "must have" purchase. If, however, you have been looking at this option and wondering whether it really makes enough difference to justify the extra cost, then I would say that, at least in my experience, yes, it does and it is a worthwhile upgrade.
